A pretty torqued off Wink user after the news broke yesterday regarding their required subscription service.
Anyway, I have a small cabin in the mountains that is currently served with a Wink. It's been great for what I need. I typically only use it to turn lights on and unlock the front door when either myself or others are visiting. It has stayed online with out many issues and has worked well for what I use it for.
So with the news, I'm looking for a replacement. After a bit of research I've narrowed it down to either Smartthings or Hubitat. The pros for Smartthings is it looks like it would be pretty much a plug and play replacement for my Wink and has a lot more function that I need (I may add some sensors down the road such as leak detect/temp). The con I have is I really am not a fan of Samsung, the company. For Hubitat I see the Pros as being a system I can learn and grow with although in honesty, I'm not sure I have all that much growth to do in this location other than the aforementioned sensors. The con, and it's a big one, is I've read the unit tends to need rebooting often. Being 150 miles away from the unit most times, this has me worried.
I may have already answered my own question here but would like to request the opinions of the group on which hub to go with and either confirm or dispel my perceptions of the two alternatives (or propose a different alternative). My devices being used are zwave switches, lights, and a Schlage lock. I'm thinking maybe about doing the Smartthings for the cabin but pursue the Hubitat for my first home as I'm there much more often and can "babysit" if necessary.
I appreciate any inputs you may have.
